Let's see how long AAPL holds up when every big fund decides to dump it in the face of lowered guidance and the global slump.

I am thinking that a proper trade agreement with China will have to give Chinese companies access to USA markets.... just as we demand acess to theirs. That will be a disaster for AAPL

Why did Apple invest billions in an LCD plant when the entire industry, including AAPL was moving off LCD to OLED?

Japan Display, in need of funds, says Taiwan's TPK decided not to invest

JUNE 16, 2019 / 8:10 PM / UPDATED 12 HOURS AGO

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Display Inc on Monday said it has received notice from
TPK Holding Co Ltd that the Taiwanese screen maker has decided not to invest a
proposed $230 million, muddying the outlook for the Apple Inc supplier.

Apple agrees to wait for c.$1.5B owed by Japan Display, to assist bailout
Ben Lovejoy - May. 30th 2019 5:47 am PT

Apple has agreed to wait for money owed to it by Japan Display in order to assist
the bailout of the troubled display-maker …

Reuters doesn’t go into details on the money owed to Apple, but it likely relates to
the Cupertino company paying most of the upfront costs of a new LCD factory built
specifically for iPhone production back in 2015.

It was reported back in March that Apple paid most of the $1.5B cost of the facility,
with an agreement that it would be repaid as a percentage of each screen sold.
However, little was repaid due to falling demand for LCD panels as smartphone
makers switched to OLED.

A better question would be why did Apple pay twice that for Beats Electronics? Have they even made back their investment on that one yet? You have to sell a lot of headphones to make up for $3 billion, even when their headphones cost $300 a pop.

Again, another complete non sequitur. Are you and limey related? The same person perhaps?

When challenged about something you've stated but can't prove or provide supporting evidence, you simply change the subject. That is the mark of a troll.

Limey has done it countless times over the years, so much so that I automatically discount anything he writes because he seldom provides links for his assertions. They're just his crazy, heavily biased, anti-Apple opinions. As such, I don't respect his ideas much.

I've not known you to do the same, continuously make outlandish statements without backing them up. Unlike limey and sylvester, you aren't even banned from the main Apple thread, but you haven't posted there in 2-1/2 years and choose to post here instead.

It's up to you to decide the type of SI participant you want to me. Choose wisely.

Steve Jobs - pre fanboy days. When Apple was REAL... enjoy... this used to be what it was all about.

Frank, honest and open!

Busiest US port hit by 7th straight month of export declines amid escalating trade war

Two indicators in the aviation industry may be pointing to a looming global downturn

David Stockman: Fed would be ‘totally nuts’ to cut rates - even as trade war risks escalate

Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981–1985) under President Ronald Reagan.

“He is only risking upsetting the entire apple cut with this infatuation with tariffs,” said Stockman, who reiterated his call for a 40% market plunge during his March “Futures Now” appearance.

Yet, Stockman also believes there’s a chance the S&P 500 could exceed its all-time high of 2,940 this year — especially if the Fed cuts rates at next week’s policy meeting. But he expects a new record would be short-lived due to the geopolitical and monetary backdrop.

“It may go up beyond that. Who knows? But it is not sustainable because all the debt is there,” Stockman said. “It’s only a matter of time before we run out of luck on policy.”
